I took it on a two night camping trip. The Spark grill fits easily on my motorcycle. I used charcoal (10-12 briquettes seems to be the magic number for one meal). I pulled into the campground late in the evening, setup the grill and started the charcoal. By the time I have the tent setup and food prepped, the coals are ready for cooking.
One night it was especially windy so I used a windscreen around the sides and the griddle on top. This worked great to keep the heat in and grilled my steaks evenly.
Hot Italian brats with zucchini, red peppers, onions and spicy brown mustard on a gyro bread was delicious! Night two was sirloin steak, yellow squash and sweet potatoes. This second meal was a stretch for the little grill to handle. I ended up eating the vegetables as they finished cooking and added the steaks one at a time as room opened up on the grill surface.
In my test at home before the trip, the charcoal lasted long enough to cook four burgers (two at a time) and was still hot a while after. Wind really affects cooking because it doesn’t have a lid to keep the heat in. Bring a windscreen and put the griddle in the top slots as a lid. Worked pretty good this way.
Buy this grill if you want to really enjoy every bite of food you eat !!! We have tried pork, lamb, beef , bacon , sausage , eggs , we’ve even made hot tea. This grill is fast to cook, easy to use , and very portable! 5 stars! Buy it today !
I've been seeing your stoves online for a while. The spark is a great small size to pack on the motorcycle. After meeting you guys at the Delmar tiny fest, I decided I had to have one!
It arrived quickly, and performs as advertised.
It's already been to Baja twice! I think I'll probably get the big one this summer to go in the Sprinter!
I usually camp by solo and this is a good size. I chose the carbon steel since it holds heat well, and I seasoned it in my oven beforehand to help prevent rust. I really like that it folds flat and takes up a small amount of space. The first meal was a big steak with poblano and I'm looking forward to doing some kabobs on the skewers.
We used our grill to heat water for coffee…then it started to rain. The heat never quit and our water was boiling by the time the rain stopped. We love our grill, only wish I would have gotten the larger one. We show the grill to everyone and tell them how wonderful it is!
